Yellowknife

MEETINGS ABOVE 60˚ ARE SPECTACULAR IN CANADA'S NORTHWEST TERRITORIES

A land of extremes, where summer sun just won’t quit and winter skies dance in magical ribbons of colour. It may be the biggest little city in Canada, but it’s the hardy people who make Yellowknife conferences shine. Planners lean into this raw landscape where First Nation cultural experiences, team building fishing tournaments, and networking beneath the Northern Lights transforms meetings into memorable experiences. It’s different meeting north of 60˚ — that’s the whole appeal.

Planning Essentials

Get a good night's rest

From suite hotels to friendly motels, houseboat B&Bs to fly-in luxury lodges, here the accommodations are all about options. Although warm northern hospitality is included at every service level, connect with the Northwest Territories Conference Bureau to chat about what to expect from the various choices.
 

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.

Groups coming from outside of Canada may be eligible for tax incentives — inquire at time of booking
